Canadian Collision Industry Forum Steering Committee

The Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF) Steering Committee guides the establishment of priority areas for CCIF and ensures the continued success of CCIF events. Steering Committee members represent all CCIF sectors—collision repairers, OE manufacturers and dealers, insurers, and suppliers. It operates on a consensus model.

Being a CCIF Steering Committee member comes with significant responsibility and requires attendance at CCIF conferences each year (currently two to three per year) and availability for conference calls (six to eight per year). Committee members will be required to make a two-year commitment to the CCIF Steering Committee.
